About Us

In some ways, the domestic adventures of Adam & Cari started before the two even lived in the same country.

Our love affair with food and experimentation began while Adam was completing his studies in Toronto and Cari in Indiana. Things really took off when we moved into our small downtown Toronto apartment (less than 700 sq ft!). Today we take advantage of our house’s best feature: a sizable kitchen with a plethora of appliances large and small (yay for wedding gifts!).

When we’re not at home cooking or gardening (or, ya know, at work), we’re out in the city exploring the best places to eat, shop, and relax. We also enjoy traveling whenever time and money allows.

    Great blog! We are new to gardening as well, but things are going pretty well considering. We do have a problem with squirrels at the moment though. Anyway just thought I would stop by and give you some encouragement! It’s so rewarding once you start making dinners with food from your garden…

    Hi Adam and Cari,

    My name is Stephen Lean and I am the Vice President of Sales with a new and innovative mobile-based social media loyalty program based in Toronto called MoPals. I wanted to reach out to you and send the below information about MoPals which provides you with an overview about our company and how MoPals is an alternative to other social media and loyalty companies such as Foursquare, Yelp, Groupon, and Air Miles, one of the largest loyalty rewards programs in Canada.

    I found your name and website Life at No. 71 as I was looking for food and restaurant bloggers in Toronto and thought you might be interested in learning more about MoPals. If the information about MoPals interests you, you can sign up as a user by logging onto the MoPals website at http://www.mopals.com and download the MoPals mobile app at the following link if you have an Android Device: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mopals.app or you can search for MoPals on Google Play.

    You can also download the MoPals mobile app at the following link if you have an iPhone Device: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/mopals-earning-real-rewards/id630682377?mt=8

    Once you have signed up to MoPals as a user you can start to earn MoCoins, which is our digital rewards currency for simply writing reviews, sharing photos, purchasing and sharing offers and checking-in to your favorite businesses using the MoPals mobile app. You can also earn MoCoins for simply inviting and signing up new friends to join the MoPals community as users and adding new businesses to the MoPals database if that business is not in our database.

    MoPals, along with Tesco, Bloomingdale’s and Starbucks has also recently been honored with a “COLLOQUY Recognizes” award, a new program that honors the companies, programs and initiatives that exemplify the most innovative advancements and forward-thinking strategies in loyalty marketing.

    MoPals is a community-driven and crowdsourced loyalty platform that bridges the gap between social media and loyalty programs. An experiential and Big Data-driven platform, MoPals rewards its members for both social and transactional behaviors. MoPals uses an exclusive digital currency to foster an exciting community where consumers are rewarded for purchases at participating businesses, as well as engaging in a wide range of social media activities that enhance brand value.

    If you have any questions about MoPals, please do not hesitate to reach out to me and I can provide you with more information about MoPals.
